USA Today released their preseason coaches’ poll just a little while ago. Here it is, in its full glory. Before proceeding, however, please note that your much beloved St. John’s Red Storm did not meet the requirements of a poll taken by coaches. To be fair to these coaches, they are basically taking educated guesses at this point. No different from what you or I would do.
Okay. Here it is. The USA Today Coaches’ Poll in all its wondrous, always topical, never controversial, fullness — or something like that…likely something.
|RANK||TEAM||RECORD||POINTS||FIRST PLACE VOTES||PREVIOUS RANK|
Others Receiving Votes: Baylor 102; Colorado 93; Creighton 87; Iowa 86; Tennessee 73; Georgetown 38; Harvard 28; Pittsburgh 23; California 16; Boise State 11; Saint Louis 8; La Salle 7; Temple 4; Missouri 4; Villanova 4; Kansas State 3; LSU 2; Iowa State 2; Arizona State 2; Illinois 2; Georgia 1; UNLV 1.
It is worth noting, however, that this poll is probably going to change a few times before the season is over. I mean, I am not expert, but you know.
